And the best chainsaw on the market is…? There is no such thing as the singular best. Sorry, I wish it was that easy, but there are many factors that determine which is the best chainsaw for you, so keep that in mind when reading this buying guide. If all you need to do is prune your trees around your yard, well, a small compact battery chainsaw like the BLACK+DECKER LCS1240 is perfect for you. But if you need to fell 34″ trees on a regular basis then that is the worst chainsaw for you, and in the latter case I’d recommend something like the Makita EA7900PRZ1.
It’s important that you understand my philosophy about choosing the right chainsaw. Unfortunately, I’ve had many people who just want one choice without ever explaining what their needs or budget is. We’re here to actually help you make a smart decision for your specific requirements. We hope this article helps you make a decision you are happy with. [Read more…]

A lot of people want to know what is the best chainsaw you can buy? Our Recommendations
Finding the best chainsaw you can buy can be a daunting task for a first-time buyer. The choices are vast and comparing the vast list of features has so many variables. Limiting your choices to gas as a power source still leaves you with a long list of features. All you want is to cut down some trees and prepare firewood. But which bar and chain will do the job? Should you use an electric chainsaw? Battery power? Or gas? But gas is so noisy, smelly and requires a lot of maintenance. [Read more…]
In this buying guide, we delve deep and look at the Best Husqvarna Chainsaw for Homeowners & Landscapers.
When we selected the best Husqvarna chainsaw for homeowners and landscapers, it’s not because Husqvarna only caters to those needs. Husqvarna is a well-known and trusted brand. Their largest chainsaw is one of the most powerful in the world. It’s used by loggers to fell big trees at a rapid rate on the steep slopes high up in the mountains. It’s a tough environment that makes great demands on both the loggers and their machines. [Read more…]
Welcome to our indepth review of the Jonsered CS2245 — a powerful 45c gas chainsaw that is reliable, well-made and easy to handle.
Generally, I’d expect to pay around $400 (give or take a bit) for top-grade 18” chainsaw. That seems to be the price range for the better medium-duty chainsaws of this size, with an engine of 45-50cc. This is why the Jonsered CS2245 came as a very pleasant surprise. It’s substantially cheaper than the much-loved Husqvarna 450 series and compares quite well to the Husky in terms of performance. [Read more…]
